Road vs Dynamic mode, just so I understand
« on: August 29, 2016, 12:18:31 AM »
Read the manual and here's basically how I understand the difference between the two:

Same horsepower and torque, same throttle response just a bit of difference between ABS and the DTC.

Am I getting it?

Yep.  Plus suspension is harder.

Same suspension setting in Dynamic is harder than in Road?

No - you can set Road suspension in Dynamic and it's the same as Road suspension in Road.

I find dynamic the best all round setting, and get less buzzing on the footpegs when riding on my toes in this setting.

As I'm not going to see her for three weeks :026:, due to not being able to take her on as luggage on the plane :013:, I decided to use the bike for the past two weeks to and from work.

Work is only twelve miles the short way but twenty the long way back so I used Dynamic mode on the way into work and Pro Dynamic on the way home. 

From what I can tell the Pro Dynamic mode seems to turn down the traction control EG the front wheel comes up enough to keep life interesting and turns down the braking force and the ABS which is ok but logically to me the braking force needs to increase as you tend to be going faster!  :007:

On the last days before our Holiday the road resurfacing team had been out and dumped two inches "ok maybe only half an inch" of gravel on the road on the way home "nice" anyway it gave me a little opportunity to test out all the modes to see what the differences are on the traction control.

Rain mode the merest whiff of throttle the power cuts out instantly.
Road gave a bit of wheel spin before the power was cut.
Dynamic allowed more spin then the power cuts out.
Pro Dynamic lots of spinning the power cuts off, which was quite exiting at sixty MPH :008:

After over thirty years behind the bars, I’ve still not done it all or seen it all.
